Located in the heart of historic Banff National Park, Lake Louise is a world-class ski-area in a World Heritage site. Eleven square miles of skiable terrain spread over four separate mountain faces are inter-connected by a lift and trail system comparable to the best Europeanski circuit concept. Lake Louise ski resort is comprised of 4,200 skiable acres making up 113 named ski runs. One of the reasons Skiing Magazine has consistently voted Lake Louise number one for scenery and value in North America is because of the fact that Lake Louise's ski season is one of the longest around, lasting over 6 months each and every year. Four conveniently located full service lodges provide deluxe service and a place to sit and relax in the middle of a hard day on the slopes. For scenic grandeur, imaginative terrain design and sheer size, the Lake Louise ski area ranks with the finest ski resorts in the world.
The Torchlight Dinner & Ski events are the ultimate way for your group to wrap up a wonderful day on the slopes, or the perfect escape to the mountains after a work week. Experience the mountain from a whole new perspective as your group has the unique opportunity to explore the hill after hours. The excitement begins at our mid-mountain lodge, Whitehorn Lodge, where you will enjoy après drinks, appetizers and live music in a majestic setting. Following après, you will enjoy first tracks down a freshly groomed run with our professional staff as your escorts. Head to the Sitzmark Lounge where a smorgasbord of food and entertainment awaits you. To make the most of your experience, why not take advantage of our optional bus service back to your Lake Louise or Banff Hotel.

SAFETY ON THE MOUNTAIN
-ALPINE RESPONSIBILITY CODE There are elements of risk that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Regardless of how you decide to use the slopes, always show courtesy to others. Please adhere to the code listed below and share with others the responsibility for a safe outdoor experience:
Always stay in control. You must be able to stop, or avoid other people or objects.
People ahead of you have the right-of-way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
Do not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.
Before starting downhill or merging onto a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
If you are involved in or witness a collision or accident, you must remain at the scene and identify yourself to the Ski Patrol.
Always use proper devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
Observe and obey all posted signs and warnings.
Keep off closed trails and closed areas.
You must not use lifts or terrain if your ability is impaired through use of alcohol and drugs.
You must have sufficient physical dexterity, ability and knowledge to safety load, ride and unload lifts. If in doubt, ask the lift attendant.
KNOW THE CODE - BE SAFETY CONSCIOUS - IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
-AVALANCHE CONTROL AREAS
The Lake Louise Ski Resort is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and contains large amounts of steep, alpine terrain. Certain weather events (snowfall, temperature, wind) can create dangerous avalanche conditions in these areas, which may be closed at any time in periods of elevated hazard or when avalanche control work is being performed. Entry into closed areas is prohibited, and will result in suspension of lift privileges.
-SKI RESORT BOUNDARY
Outside the Lake Louise Ski Resort boundary lies the backcountry of Banff National Park. Traveling in these areas is hazardous, and those leaving the Ski Resort boundary do so at their own risk and must be prepared to travel on their own terms. The backcountry is not patrolled and receives no avalanche control, and includes other hazards such as cliffs, rocks, trees, and becoming lost. Backcountry travelers must rely on themselves in case of emergency, as rescue may take considerable time to come to your aid. Please contact any Banff National Park information center for more information on backcountry travel.
